Your Best Defense, Get the Flu Shot

The flu is nothing to sneeze at.

The aches and pains caused from fever and other flu symptoms will land you in bed for days, leading to lost days of work or school.

Every year anywhere from 5% to 20% of people in the U.S. catch the flu and more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from seasonal flu-related complications, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Last year, Texas was a designated ‘hot bed’, reporting some of the highest numbers of flu cases in the country.
